“Theodore’s ‘Spit Blood Out (Single Version)’ is a triumphant, atmospheric swirl of emotions; tight percussion, soaring vocals, celestial synthesizers and intoxicating basslines all float amidst solar rays of shimmered guitar tones. Sorrowed piano’s twinkle and glimmer like distant stars, circling back through cascading decadence before erupting brighter than the heavens themselves.”

A voice in your head that screams for solution”, encapsulating on the struggles we all succumb to whilst facing inner demons. A reminder that all is not lost, and hope can prevail.
